+John Hagel: "Executives too often limit their framework for talent development to include only employees within their enterprises. But to paraphrase Sun Microsystems co-founder Bill Joy, ‘Not all the smart people work for you.’" -- This is the true reality of organization within a hyper-efficient networked environment -- and the key to unlocking organizations' cognitive and motivation surplus.

Then, nurture the alum post-employment. Think of the firm as a platform for "employees" to develop themselves. More on how this can work here [http://bit.ly/alumni20]
